Americana: Carsauropod

January 11, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Carsauropod, Missoula, Montana, USA. A couple of people in my neighborhood made this car look like a dinosaur, perhaps Agustinia ligabuei, a sauropod. Icicles were inserted upside down in the snow on top of the car. When I photographed it during the day the icicles did not show very well because of the background. I returned in the dark with two remote flashes in addition to the master flash on my camera. The back light made the icicles stand out like the spines on a dinosaur.

The image below was generated by using a longer shutter speed to capture ambient light with a flash on the rear curtain, just before the shutter closed. It always amazes me what the camera can see... I could not see hill with my eyes at all... simply too dark.
